SPECIAL NOTE: At the end of this episode, hear the brand-new, unreleased, Wilco song, White Wooden Cross.
Mikael Jorgensen is the keyboardist for Wilco, one of the most celebrated indie rock bands of the last 25 years. In our conversation we find out if a degree from DeVry University is essential to being in the band and try to get to the bottom of just what’s up with the water pressure at the Wilco Loft. We also chat about the logistics of being on tour and how the band never takes their fans for granted. Getting a behind-the-scenes peek at this amazing band was such a treat.
Wilco’s new album, Ode to Joy is out on October 4th.
